Is it me or does he look tired? :bored: I heard from Robin that one of the FJC's broke a diff! I'll find out more soon..... It's probably the one Yoder wrecked! :lmao: Just kidding Scott....we know you didn't wreck it on purpose..... :rolleyes: :lmao: :p: :hill:

I think he is not thrilled to be with a bunch of Jeeps, but good strategy. Off roaders in jeeps seeing what a near stock FJ could do taps another market.

No yoder did not do it, I did. We have some figuring out to do, so I can not say much about the diff at this point.
We (fj cruiser crew) were nicly recived by the Jeep community. Usually in the morning for the first couple of days people would stand off and just look or ask questions. No one wanted to drive the FJ. Usually after lunch people would want to after seeing what the little truck could do. Then later in the week people would jump at the chance to drive it when the trail gave a chance to switch drivers. I let one guy drive the whole way down from gold bar rim and up the big ledge. It was great to hear comments like the ride is smooth, it wheels great, man I can not beleive i did that line, etc.
So the last day people were waving and saying hi to us everywhere. We were a hit, and great to have on any trail we were along on. Different teams helped with rebuilding drive lines, knuckle housing(sheered off the top control arm bolts(all 4 on toyota mini truck)), used my broken truck to winch up a broken, jeep up a hill. It was fun and full of adventure. It was alot of fun to wheel at EJS 06. later robbie

That beautiful machine is a low rider and is gonna be beat to death if they don't lift it. I understand that wont happen because they want to show what is can do in stock form. Oh well.

My only complaint is that Toyota didn't lift it some more from the factory, like they did for the stock 3rd gen runners and Tacoma's. But's that another discussion I've been meaning to bring up.

robbie: "really, we were just driving along listening to npr when suddenly we hear this, like, collossal bang, and we're like, did you HEAR that? Then this really loud grinding like noise was coming from the back seat, and I was, like, 'damn dude, the boss isn't gonna like this' and Chris was like, 'whoa'.

:rolleyes:
